About Eco Park:-
New Town Eco Park (officially Prakriti Tirtha) is an urban park in Rajarhat, Kolkata. The park is situated on a 480 acres (190 ha) plot and will surround a 104 acres (42 ha) waterbody with an island in the middle. The park was conceptualised by Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee in July 2011. West Bengal Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO) is the overarching body coordinating the construction of the park, along with different other government bodies responsible for implementation of different works inside the park. The park has been divided into three broad parts; 1) ecological zones like wetlands, grasslands, and urban forest, 2)theme gardens and open spaces, 3)and urban recreational spaces. The Eco Park will be further divided into different sub-parts according to the different types of fauna planted. According to the plan, the park will have different areas like wild flower meadows, a bamboo garden, grasslands, tropical tree garden, bonsai garden, tea garden, Cactus Walk, a heliconia garden, a butterfly garden, a play area and an amphitheatre. Further, there is plan to develop an eco-resort in public-private partnership, and will also include an area where handicrafts from different part of the state will be exhibited. The park was inaugurated on 29 December 2012 by Mamata Banerjee.
The Eco park is located along the Major Arterial Road in Action Area - II of New Town, Kolkata at 22°35′55″N 88°28′03″E. The park will be surrounded by the Kolkata International Convention Center and the Kolkata Museum of Modern Art on the North, the upcoming Central Business District and International Financial Hub on the east, and existing human settlement of Jatragachi/Hatiara on the South and West.

You are bold enough, Great vision looking at your last few shots, playing with harsh lighting condition stretching the exposure to the limits and as for this a shot, mono version is a smart move. Focus is centred around the stunning cloud scape and the low well spread out bikes as both carry the full weight of this shot minus all the intrusions. Using wide lens to your advantage is great idea lends good visual impact and the clarity is first class evenly distributed throughout packed by good detail in shadowed areas. It's always nice to sit back and watch the show!! a very challenging shot but it's seamlessly executed. Very well done my friend, My congrats

wonderful B&W composition my friend!
Really enjoy your low POV here and proximity to the bike,which creates so nice 3D effect to the scene.Also the sky was just perfect for monochrome treatment.
Have a nice day
